Cup a 'big priority' - Harry

Harry Redknapp insists he'll field the strongest side possible as he goes all-out to win Sunday's FA Cup tie at Bolton.

Harry Redknapp insists he'll field the strongest side possible as he goes all-out to win Sunday's FA Cup tie at Bolton.

The battle is still very much on for fourth place in the Barclays Premier League but Harry insists there will be no prioritising at this stage - not least with us already at the fifth-round of the competition.

"We want to stay in the FA Cup and we want to go to Wembley, so it's a massive game as far as I'm concerned," said Harry.

"I'm sure Owen Coyle will want to win the game as well, but Bolton are also involved in a relegation battle and it's tight down there, so his first priority will be to keep them in the division. At the same time, he will want to get a result.

"I watched Bolton at City on television during the week and they played well. Kevin Bond went to the game and said the same. I thought they were unlucky and this will be a difficult game for us. I've never been there yet and had an easy game.

"I will play what I consider the strongest team to try and win the game. We want to be involved in the FA Cup and therefore it's an important game for us."
